1. Help all high school students graduate with clear post-secondary goals that are supported by a well-informed plan for how to achieve them.
2. Ensure students' academic transcript data follows them as they advance from K-12 into higher education to support important decisions about admissions and enrollment, academic course placement and financial aid.
Established with support from the chancellors’ offices of the California Community Colleges (CCC) and California State University (CSU), College Next makes the data-informed functionality available on CaliforniaColleges.edu free to K-12 districts. Students will experience easier transitions as they move from high school into college and career when districts take a unified approach to the adoption of CaliforniaColleges.edu throughout each College Next region. The benefits are particularly meaningful to student populations less likely to successfully a college certificate or degree. College Next gives educators the tools and resources they need to facilitate meaningful conversations about the future that can change students' lives.
By working together, College Next regions can remove barriers to success and support students in setting and achieving their goals for life after high school.
